CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Earlier this August 2018, the Lake County Sheriff’s Gang Task Force went undercover, arresting eight men in a continued campaign to suppress the demand for purchased sex.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Gang Task Force joined a coalition of federal and local law enforcement agencies in a nationwide operation which specifically targeted customers of prostitutes known as “Johns.”

This was a web-based operation and utilized a classified advertising website, regularly used as a medium for prostitution. When the “Johns” arrived and offered money to the undercover detectives for sexual acts, they were arrested and transported to the Lake County Jail.

Over the past seven years, this nationwide effort led to the arrests of more than 8,000 total “Johns” and sex traffickers.

“There is a clear link between prostitution and human trafficking. Human trafficking exists even here in Lake County, and the traffickers often prey on our most vulnerable. Over the last two years the Lake County Sheriff’s Gang Task Force has successfully rescued five women being trafficked.”

— Sheriff Mark Curran

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office announced the following arrests …

The eight men were arrested in the block of 4100 Fountain Square Place, Waukegan:

Alexis Torres, 47, of the 1000 block of Merton Avenue, Waukegan

David Brown, 45, of the 6200 block of 12th Avenue, Kenosha, WI

Scott Walker, 27, of the 10200 block of West Pickford Avenue, Beach Park

Andrew Desmedt, 44, of the 900 block of Goodwin Drive, Park Ridge

All of the subjects were charged with Solicitation of a Sexual Act (Class A Misdemeanor) and have a return court date of Monday, September 10, 2018 at 8:45 AM in courtroom C-401.

Desmedt was additionally charged with Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver (Class 1 Felony) and Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance (Class 4 Felony). Desmedt posted 10% of his $10,000.00 bond and is due back in court on Thursday October 11, 2018 at 9:00 AM in courtroom T110.

Sheriff Curran reminds the public the defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
